  • Great location, just like home!

    "An excellent apartment for 2; everything you need is there. Many nice touches like the spice rack, coffee filters and more. Very quiet and a super location; park the car and take a walk you will be pleasantly surprised. Both Jim and Clare were easy to connect with and super to deal with. We will return for sure. Many thanks."

  • Perfect Portland Stay!

    "This quintessential Portland house is located in a fantastic neighborhood. (I know because I lived in close-in Portland for six years.) The owners have clearly taken great care with the renovations. They have also gone above and beyond in making the house a wonderful stay for their guests. The place is absolutely spotless, and the bed and linens were great. Booking and check-in were super easy. We will definitely stay here again, and look forward to seeing the backyard garden in full bloom. Oh, and thanks for the bottle of wine!"

  • Better than described!

    "The Garden Apartment is a wonderful place to stay. My wife and I visited Portland to see our son and his family, and Diane and Charley's rental was perfect. It had everything we needed for our home base, as we explored the city. I really can not think of anything I would change. Parking was easy, the home was close to all our needs, and it has heated bathroom floors! We came home and my wife now wants heated bathroom floors- she got spoiled in just 4 days. Thanks for providing us a great place to stay. Your rental fits. And we will return."

  • another nice stay

    "This is my home base whenever I come to Portland. The family who lives in Portland (who we come to visit) now calls this their cousin's place. We love the chickens and play set outside. My son missed seeing the slugs in the water garden area since we came so late this year. It is a long drive up Skyline/the hill to get here but my family enjoys this place it is worth the drive for us. I have always found this place to be clean and enjoy being able to do a load of laundry here if needed. I noticed some material has been installed on the stairs up to the unit to make them not very slippery which I appreciated. On a prior stay there was some confusion over our start date with the guests vacating the place before us, but this time there were no issues so I believe that was an isolated issue."

Things to Do in Portland

Washington Park: Washington Park is one of the oldest in Portland and was purchased by the city in 1871. Cougar used to roam what is now the park, and thick brush and timber covered the land. Since then its been transformed into an outdoor play land for people of all ages. You'll find a number of attractions in the park, including a bronze statue of Sacajawea as well as the Lewis and Clark Memorial. At the center of Washington Way and Wright Avenue, you'll see the Oregon Holocaust Memorial featuring a stone bench near a cobblestone area that simulates a town square. Be sure to stop and see the wall of history panels that offer a brief look at the Holocaust and quotes from survivors. This historical site is also home to paved paths that are great for walking and jogging as well as a giant playground for children that includes a disabled access area.

Pittock Mansion: There's a story behind every house and the Pittock Mansion is no different. The structure was built in 1914 for the state's first and most influential families. It overlooks the city skyline and is a great place to learn about the history of Portland. Henry and Georgiana Pittock lived in the home during the 1900s and their work contributed to the growth of the city they called home. When you visit the mansion today it's full of family artifacts and a memorial to the Pittock family. Generations of the Pittock family lived in the home until 1958, and the home was opened to the public in 1965. Not only do you get a peek into the past of the Pittocks, but a look at how Portland became what it is today.

Portland Japanese Garden: The Japanese Garden is comprised of 5.5 acres and five distinct garden styles. There's a sense of peace, harmony and tranquility in the garden - perfect if you're looking for a place to relax during your stay in Portland. The Flat Garden, Strolling Pond Garden, The Tea Garden and Sand and Stone Garden are influenced by Shinto, Buddhist and Taoist philosophies and composed of stone, water and plants.
